Wicker Bones


Since 2009, Wicker Bones have been bringing folk music to the people of Dublin.

They began life as a ballad band, securing residencies in several pubs and gradually writing their own material before leaving the world of pub playing to perform at nearly every major festival in Ireland in 2010 and 2011, garnering great response as they went

In 2010 they recorded their debut Ep ‘The Martry Sessions’ with Tony O’Brian of Empty Riff Productions, a recording that has been described as ‘raw and powerful’. They finally saw the release of this Ep at The Mercantile, Dublin in October 2011 to a packed house. In September 2011 Wicker Bones became the first Irish group to be invited to perform at the World Culture Festival in Louyang, China and have been secured for this festival and another in Beijing in 2012. They have impressed audiences throughout Ireland, the UK, Europe and China with their own unique brand of Irish music.

Wicker Bones are currently working on some exciting and innovative material for their debut album which is earmarked for release late 2012.
